Its Haldi's job to lose.

Look at the numbers fellas:

Over 4500 yards passing, 56% completion, 40 TDs and 15 int's in two seasons. He's been in the top 30 in QB rating in the nation over the last two seasons. His record is 18-6. Considering that he was hurt for most of 2002, I think those are pretty good numbers. Granted he's not a superstar QB, however, you can't just say he's a sorry QB because his TEAM has struggled against Toledo the last 2 years keeping them out of a bowl. Haldi did not blow a 3rd and 33 play. He didn't give up 3 straight plays on defense of 40 yards plus against Toledo in the 2nd quarter at Huskie Stadium in 2002. Someone is going to have to step up big time to take the job over a successful senior QB like Haldi.

But you have a strange crush on me alum, instead of jumping on the guy who posted that it was you jump on me...Why?  Because it hurts your feelings when i post my opinion, and then i back it up with stats????
Which stats did you post? I saw one scenario in one game detailed.

Facts:
Haldi ranked 5th in the MAC in passing yds/game
Haldi ranked 6th in the MAC in total offense yds/game
Haldi ranked 6th in the MAC in passing efficiency

NIU was first in the MAC in red zone efficiency w/Haldi at QB

none of this says that Haldi sucked or that Haldi was the best QB to ever lace 'em up.

But here's that stat that, IMO, says a lot about the last couple of years:

NIU scoring D averaged approx 24 pts/game the last two years (combing 03's 21.5 with 02's 24.8) In the three losses mentioned most, NIU gave up 33 (UT '02), 34 (BG '03) and 49 (UT '03). In '03, the next highest point total against us was 24. In '02, we had 41 scored on us two other times in wins, and 37 scored on us in a loss. Is it a coincidence that we were 15-1 when holding the opposition below our average, while 3-5 when they exceeded our average?
Here are some stats that are fun and matter

Josh Haldi Completion Percentage...10th in the MAC, WOW 10th!
So define passing efficiency, These stats are from ESPN.com

Another FUN stat 8th in the MAC in yards/attempt....Not like he is missing Long passes, he is missing them short.

Haldi #7 in the MAC in int's.

#2 in Sacks, sometimes you have to avoid that rush...#7 in QB rating.

So lets review those stats for a second if we can...Do we as much out of haldi? Nope, everyone here says he makes great choices and is a really smart QB, well for all his brains he can't seem to hit short passes. To be a top team in the MAC we have to have a QB who finishes higher than 5th in any stat. We need a guy who can play and hit a short pass, i think the 10th in completion percentage tells a lot. Along with his 9ints. THE MAC ISN'T KNOWN FOR DEFENSE FOLKS, HOW BAD TO YOU HAVE TO BE TO BE 10th in completion percentage? Not to mention most opposing D was looking at stoping the run with 8 in the box. I hate to see how josh does when they have people back to defend the pass and can stop the run with 6 or 7.

So defend haldi all you will, i agree he probably will be the starter, but i don't think he is very good, and a lack of mike turner will prove it.

Oh yea and as for your stat DAN about with haldi at QB NIU was number one in redzone efficiency...SURE DID HELP TO HAVE AZAR AND TURNER!!!!!!! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: If josh is the QB as well all seem to agree he will be, lets see how high that stat is with no turner or azar. But i assume if it is low it won't be his fault.

Willy, you can put your arms down now. Your the only one with them up.
Ah alum, your trouble reading makes me laugh. But i also feel bad that you make NIU look bad everytime you post, i said i thought haldi would start, and i also stated that i think novak will keep haldi at QB no matter what.

Now would i like for it to change sure, but i'm a realist....

SO Read this post, read it again, write a response, Now delete the part that says i think that haldi will not be the starter and joe will open up the competition....

That should help you look smarter.
